How to Set Up or Organize a Zoom Meeting.
To start a Zoom meeting on the spot, it’s become a simple process and also just as easy to schedule one in advance – which can help you organize your remote work calendar.
The main differentiator between Zoom Rooms and Microsoft Teams Rooms is that Zoom has a unique kiosk mode, while Teams works to create secure internal meetings, with its emphasis on security and integration with Microsoft Teams.
As of July 15, 2022 Zoom is restricting meetings between just two people to that 40-minute duration. Previously, only free calls with three or more people were subject to this limitation.
Zoom said that a free meeting will end after 40 minutes whether it’s active or idle for any of the following scenarios:
- One host and no participants
- One host and one or more participants at the same time
- No host and one or more participants at the same time who join before the host
You can schedule a Zoom Meeting and Invite Participants.
Zoom meetings have been on for a while, but, however, become more popular for virtual meetings during the Coronavirus pandemic that eventually led to restriction of movement with all countries of the world declaring a total lockdown to stop the spread by motivating people to self-isolate. In this discussion, I will be explaining how to set up or organize a Zoom meeting.
Scheduled Zoom meetings can be shared through email, text, or invitation links.
When you set up a Zoom meeting, you can also choose settings like automatically muting participants upon entry.
Zoom helps businesses and organizations to bring their teams together for meetings in a closed environment. The app runs across mobile devices, and desktops.
Time needed: 5 minutes.
How to Set Up or Organize a Zoom Meeting
- Install The Zoom App
Start by installing the Zoom app for your device here. After installation, launch the app and sign up or sign in (for existing users), and some four options are provided to you.
- Select the new meeting option
Find and select the new meeting option to start a new meeting. The option you have selected will take you to a virtual video conference room.
- Select invite option
Select the contacts you want to add to your meeting and click invite from the bottom-right corner. You can also select the email option to send an invitation to email addresses. You only need to enter the recipient’s email address in the address bar displayed and then send.
- Invite Through Alternative Means
Another way to invite people to join your Zoom meeting is through Slack and other apps. You will only be required to copy the video conference invitation URL, or copy the invitation email to your clipboard and share it with them straight.
The recipient on their end receives the invite and can choose to join the meeting through the link sent to them or not to join at all.
- Proceed with the meeting
Finally, when you’re done with the Zoom meeting, you can end the call by simply clicking the end meeting option from the bottom-right.
